The Summer School Understanding Global China will focus on the following topics:
- China-EU Relations: What will a powerful Xi mean for the China-EU relationship? How EU institutions and EU member states can improve the EU-China political and economic partnership? Should we consider China as a threat or a growing opportunity to Europe?
- China-US Relations: How China and America see each other? How will the relationship evolve under the Trump-Xi mandates? What a US-China trade war would look like and which would be the consequences for the world economic order?
- China’s role in global governance: What is China’s role in global governance? Is China fully integrated into the global financial system? What do Chinese policymakers envision for Beijing’s international order and what US and the EU can do about it?
